Bill Cosby's humorous take on parenting is an enjoyable and easy read that will bring a laught to parents and teach us to laugh at ourselves. Dry, witty humor, spot on in terms of children's behaviors.

I did like this book. I liked it for a couple of reasons. First of all, it was a really quick read. With the "Afterword", it is only 178 pages long. Second of all, I didn't know how Bill Cosby would be as an author, but let me tell you, he is funny in this book as well!!!

He is the father of 5 children. He spoke about several aspects of being a father. Plus, he did it all with good humor.

I recommend this book!
